Free Spirit BMX Bikes from 1979

BMXing had become a huge sport where I lived during the late 70s and early 80s.

I never took part in the BMX racing but I do remember my first BMX bike. I traded an old stereo for it. There was a slight problem with the bike and that was the back wheel which had become an imperfect circle from all of the jumping the previous owner did, but I didn’t care. I road that bike everywhere with a slight bob in the tire. 🙂

The only way I even had one was because I traded for it. In all honesty I should have been happy with the bike my parents bought me (it was a 10 speed), but the BMX bikes just looked so cool!

I remember growing up and one of my friends had one with the black frame and green plastic fenders…really great looking bike, even now. My brother and I really wanted one then, oh well…

Yeah there were a lot of oh wells for me too. My cousin always seemed to have the latest and greatest when it came to toys but I was still pretty happy with what I had. 🙂
